I am in awe of Sweater Girl, who had the guts to do what I don’t. She’s working on what looks like the same Aran pattern I’m working on, and she also flubbed the big six-stranded cable. But she actually went back and ripped the cable panel out to fix it.

Wow. Just, wow.

Seeing someone else do it gives me a little more courage. Perhaps I’ll take up Yvette’s challenge and frog it. I’ve got a long house-sitting weekend coming up with four dogs and no deadlines. Hmm…

    Thank you. Let me know how the Debbie Bliss patterns work. Even more importantly, let me know which ones don’t work. I want to get this thing as functional as possible quickly.

    I’m working on an Aran from Two Sticks and a String. I’ve seen the pattern printed at least one other place, but I didn’t get the name of the publisher. (It was a single sheet in the racks at my LYS.)

    The Aran was *not* my first sweater. I’d forgotten about a sleeveless vest I made my mom last year for Christmas. (This tells you something about the quality of my mind. I forgot I knit a sweater.) So, it’s my second. But since starting it I’ve started and finished one child’s sweater and an infant’s coat. It’s like starting the Aran was a threshold event that let me start tackling bigger projects.

    David – you rock! Cable grapher is so cool – I am going to put in some of those Debbie Bliss patterns that I am afraid to do without a graph.

    What sweater are you working on? And are your really doing an aran for your first sweater? Damn. You are too cool. Can’t believe I hadn’t seen your site before.
